I have been a lot

on the road lately, experiencing pretty amazing things musically as well as personally.


I have just finished a small tour with ALONY which was musically as challenging as it was rewarding. On the concert in Nürnberg (stimmenfang-festival) I received the „International Jazz Prize of th Nürnberger Nachrichten “- it was a short ceremony- but most importantly--- the concert went really well! I have a feeling that some audiences need time to open the door to our music, but once they have opened it- they are grateful and thirsty for more- which is a WONDERFUL feeling! 


I was deeply touched to find out that Bob Brookmeyer sent out the „Dismantling Dreams“ CD to some music journalists in the U.S. As a result we received wonderful critics on JazzWax.com and on Artsjournal.com - maybe this will open some new doors- i am keeping my fingers crossed! 


The next concert with ALONY on Oktober 30th will take place during the Jazz-Festival at the renowned Schloss Elmau. One of Europe's grand hotels---- i am working on combining the "work" and the "pleasure" parts of my life....:-)
